SEAN CRONIN Le­in­ster hooker v JULIEN MARC­HAND Toulouse hooker

The Rugby Paper - - European Champions Cup -

The Toulouse hooker was a rock in de­fence for his side and both No 2s were 100 per cent at li­ne­out time, but the Ir­ish in­ter­na­tional’s work in the loose was ex­cep­tional. An­toine Dupont may have de­nied him a try, but even­tu­ally Cronin got the try he de­served – his ninth of the sea­son.
